  • Tough week for Lady Knights

    Due to cold and rainy conditions last week, the Marion County Lady Knights softball team was not able to play any games until Friday and Saturday in the Lady Laker Classic in Russell County.  The Lady Knights competed in four games during the tournament, losing three of the four, taking their overall record to 3-4 on the season.

  • Weekend offers hunting and...

    Coming up this weekend are several activities to keep anyone entertained!
    For the hunter, we have the spring youth wild turkey weekend coming up on April 6-7.
    Some things to keep in mind: Make sure the youth has a gun that fits. Pattern your gun at 25 to 30 and aim where the birds’ neck meets his body. If possible use a full blind, if you don’t have a full blind back up to a tree trunk/brush and don’t move (it’s said a turkey can see a blink)! Don’t over-call and wait for your bird to come to you, which could take a while.

  • ThatEppsKid

    Who would have thought that a tiny sixth grader that scored three points in her varsity debut on the Marion County High School basketball team on Dec. 15, 2006, against Danville would turn out to be the top basketball player in the state of Kentucky and one of the best players in the entire country? If you said you would, you had some high hopes for a sixth grader. Sure, the name Epps brings with it some high notoriety, but for her to have accomplished all the things that she did is truly a remarkable feat.

  • Miss Basketball

    “Wow.”
    That was the first word to come out of Makayla Epps’ mouth Friday night during her acceptance speech after being named Kentucky’s Miss Basketball.
    Surrounded by many of her peers, her coaches and her family at a reception held at the Seelbach Hilton Hotel in Louisville, Epps went on to say how special this award was to her.
